Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 29th day of February, 2016.

WOW …. the last day of February 2016.

Yesterday was the birthday of one of my nephew’s “D” …… not sure how I could have forgotten your birthday but I did.

Happy Birthday ……

Also found out that yesterday is also the birthday of one of my neighbour’s ….. another guy.

Alvin and I were out for a walk in the afternoon and they called us over to their house to chat.

It was then I found out it was his birthday and her birthday is a few days before my daughter’s.

Lots of birthdays.

 

Well we woke up to a fresh blanket of the white stuff.

Spring is definitely here as we usually get some snow about that time.

Mother Nature likes to keep us guessing.

On the plus side ….. temperatures are going up after today ….. so it will melt quickly.

It was almost gone ….. had more ice left than snow.

We just keep chipping away.

 

Did anyone watch the OSCARS last night?

I watch until just after Lady Gaga sang one of the nominated songs.

By the way, I will say this again ….. that girl can SING.

This year was one of those years that I did not see many movies ….

I did see “The Martian” and before I went to bed, it had not won one of the big categories.

Kind of disappointing as I did think it was very good.

Too bad about the controversy ……

I will say this.

I go to a  movie or rent a movie for this reason:  IT HAS A GOOD STORY.

It does not matter if Leo, Denzel, George, Halle, Bruce, or Anne had a starring role ……. I go to the movies for the story.

I have not seen every movie that Leo has been nor have I seen every movie Halle has been in either.

In fact most of the movies I see are not the ones that are up for the big awards.

So whether they got the gold statue is mute.

Anyway just my thoughts.

 

I hope that you have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: all of the actors on the planet Earth ….. great job.

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 1st day of April, 2015.

As we enter the final month of the first quarter.

Now doesn’t that sound all financial-like.

I love April because I love spring.

April is usually the starting point for us for spring and sometimes when March ends …. well you know.

The in like a lamb out like a lion or something like that …..

With the rain last night the air feels cleaner somehow.

The rain has turned to snow and most of the tiny flakes are melting as they touch the ground.

However, there are a few that have banded together and are sticking ….. that can be seen on the grassy areas.

The temperature is cold enough to wear a light winter coat and that I shall.

Oh well, soon it shall be double digits and then summer.

We just have to be patient.

Well I am running just a tad late so better get going here.

I hope that you have a “Happy April Fool’s Day” ……

Life is grand ….. I AM HAPPY …. seems that song by Mr. Williams just keeps buzzing around my head.

It is a great song for that ……. HAPPINESS ……

Special Hello to: all those people who celebrate April Fool’s Day …. be kind.

Always, Carol and Alvin
